Transfering Win98 bookmarks to WinXP question

There's a folder in Windows folder(Win98) called Favorites. In that folder contains the bookmarks for Internet Explorer.
Problem is, in WinXP this Favorite folder doesn't exist, so how do I transfer all my Win98 bookmarks to WinXP?

I thought it did it automatically when you upgraded to XP. Why dont you just put them on a disc, or even a floppy. And if all else fails, just print them all out and put them in again manually.

If you still have Win98, just export all the favorites into a HTML file, and in WinXP, import the favorites back from the HTML file.

If you already get rid of Win98, go to Windows Explorer, look for the C:\[Win98Folder]\Favorites, copy everything in here, to the Windows XP "Favorites" folder.

Ah.. thanks.. I didn't know about the import/export function in Win98.

Spaceman, nope because my WinXP PC is a new one , so Win98 OS has ever been installed.

I forget how I did it.. I guess if you have netscape you can import your IE bookmark to it, then slap the bookmarks file into netscape on your xp system. Then import from IE.
